, certainly plays a part in the right track-wrong track as another way to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a h

: that's right, brooke. i think you can describe today as, if yesterday was the obama care rebranding effort getting launched, today might have been an obama branding -- rebranding effort getting launched because the president went back to his base, was trying to rib up his base with two events in washington, one at the event center for american progress, a liberal think tank in washington, talking about the economy, issues bi s like incom disparity, called for a hike in minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits, but he wrapped up an event at the white house with younger americans, a youth summit here at the white house that goes to the issues that the white house believes younger americans care about. first and foremost on the president's mind, was the affordable care act, they desperately want younger americans to sign up. you mentioned the enrollment numbers. 29,000 in the first couple days of this month, exceeding all of what was picked up in october, and about a third, by the way, of what the administration says will be reported for november. and the president very interestin

was a liberator. while no doubt president obama is catching hell on some twitter feeds on the right side of the spectrum for shaking hands with raul castro he did have a specific line in his speech that seemed to be targeted to mr. castro, saying there are too many that claim solidarity with mandela but don't tolerate dissent for their own people. that was a point at castro in particular. >> president obama as you said, he took time to directly address his counterparts and urge them to better follow mandela's example. let's listen. >> there are too many people who happily embrace madiba's legacy of racial reconciliation but passionately resist even modest reforms that would challenge chronic poverty and growing inequality. there are too many leaders who claim solidarity with madiba's struggle for freedom, but do not tolerate dissent from their own people. and there are too many of us, too many of us on the sidelines comfortable in complacency or cynicism, when our voices must be heard. >> he could have been talking about any country in the world but it seems like he was talking abou
